OK, let me backtrack. You got the top 3 absolutely right. Out of the 100 Greatest Women in Music (of the last 20 years), Madonna should be seated at the number one throne. Mariah in the #2 spot and Beyonce in the #3 spot are also right on target.
Gaga at #4 and Adele at #5? Really? I’m not a Gaga fan, but I do think she should be on the list, even high on the list. Top ten. I am an Adele fan, but #5 seems too much. I’m outdone that both Adele and Gaga topped Whitney (#6) and Janet (#7). I’m not surprised, though, because some of the other rankings baffled me.
Fantasia came in at #32. She wouldn’t be on my list at all, but I can accept her presence on the list. What I don’t understand is how she beat out Queen Latifah (#34) and Melissa Etheridge (#42). Really?
What put me over the top was Celine Dion taking the #21 ranking? Celine? Only #21? Celine didn’t even make the top 20? Really?
Really, VH1, really?
Trying not to take it personally,
